EBP South’s cause was successfully accepted by Co-op for the Local Community Fund. Members who then went on choose EBP South as their cause raised £2093.83.

EBP South’s cause was to raise money for the Primary STEM Fair, a 3-day interactive event for young people aged 9-11 from Portsmouth and Hampshire to visit STEM organisations with the aim to encourage them into STEM careers.

Customers who are members or become members were able to choose the local cause they backed with many people in Portsmouth, Southampton and South Hampshire backing EBP South.

Jacquie ‘We are grateful to the COOP for their support which will enable us to encourage young people to consider Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths in a fun and interactive way. 

‘With engagement from local Organisations the Fair will give pupils in Years 5/6 the chance to experience how STEM is important within the workplace and gives them the motivation to study STEM subjects at higher levels.’ 

‘The COOP local community fund was a huge success and we would like to thank all members who joined and chose our cause.’
